Caroline Sunshine began studying ballet at the age of 3. In kindergarten she landed her first lead role playing Goldilocks in a classroom play, then acted with the Orange County Children's Theater, and danced competitively with the South Coast Performing Arts studio in Tustin, California. Around the time she entered sixth grade Caroline began going on auditions and landed her first professional role in a commercial for Amazing Allysen, the talking doll. Sunshine first gained notoriety for her role as Barbara Winslow in the Feature Film 'Marmaduke' based on the comic strip of the same name. In 2010 Sunshine landed a co-starring role on the Disney Channel original series 'Shake It Up!' as the European exchange student antagonist Tinka Hessenheffer alongside Kenton Duty as her flamboyant fraternal twin brother Gunther. The glitzy brother/sister duo of Gunther and Tinka is said to be inspired by Ryan and Sharpay Evans of Disney's 'High School Musical!' franchise.
